The MLTI and Department of Education will be hosting 5 webinars throughout the 2011-2012 school year on the Maine Arts Assessment Initiative and how it impacts teaching and learning in our schools.  Please join Catherine Ring, Rob Westerberg and guests for the first webinar, a conversation around Why Arts Assessment? An Introduction to the Maine Arts Education Assessment Initiative on Wednesday, September 7th, from 3:30 PM to 4:30 PM. Instructions for joining the webinar can be found below.

The Maine Arts Assessment Initiative (MAAI) has been designed to create an environment in Maine where assessment in Arts education is an integral part of the work all arts educators do to deepen student learning in the arts. MAAI includes professional development opportunities, regionally and statewide, to share and expand on arts educators knowledge and skills. Teachers will be invited to contribute tools, resources, and examples of quality assessments and supportive standards based curriculum documents for all to access.

Each webinar will be recorded and added to the MLTI Archives for future viewing. Information on where the archived webinars will be posted on the MDOE arts ed webpages at http://www.maine.gov/education/lres/vpa/assessment.html I suggest that you attend the webinars with other teachers and follow-up with a discussion about applying the information in your school/district. Attendees will be eligible for two contact hours for their participation in the live webinar.  The 5 webinars are designed to engage teachers and administrators alike: (all times 3:30-4:30)
